Aging is inevitable. When we are in our twenties, the skin is naturally good looking, so we tend to care less. The damages implicated to the skin at this age at a subcellular level from harmful invisible UV rays, pollution, smoke, and stress become obvious at later age as dull, dilated pore, brown blotchy, dry, saggy and wrinkled skin.
In the thirties, we start noticing changes in skin texture, color, and elasticity. Many start skincare routine as showed up in commercials, social media and as per peer suggestions.
There are so many myths about skincare. For example; organic, ayurvedic and natural products are harmless; exotic herbs and minerals are better and Korean products are the one-stop solution. Honestly, there is no magic wand or potion that does it all.
Effective skincare ingredients are limited. The skincare industry plays around these molecules in various combinations and strengths and comes up with various attractive looking online beauty products years after years.
I have heard many say, “I’ve used high end creams from different brands for so many years, yet! I have problems with my skin”. Is this your story?
Do you feel something is not syncing with your skin routine? Do you still have skin issues despite using sunscreen and high-end cosmeceuticals?
Effective Skin Care Routine
Just doing skincare is not enough. It has to be done effectively and religiously to bring out noticeable change. In a nutshell, key ingredients are antioxidant vitamin serum, safe lightening moisturizer, broad-spectrum sunscreen, retinoid, peptides, and controlled exfoliant. You must be thinking it is not new. I know it and have been doing it. True! But the question is have you done correctly.
What matters is the right concentration, combination, consistency, size of particle, stability, quantity, frequency, and sequence of application.
For example, Vitamin C or Vitamin E doesn’t work to its optimum potential alone. A combination of vitamins always works better. The serum is lightweight and has the highest concentration of molecules. It gets absorbed and works better than cream. It has to be applied first and twice daily. The higher the concentration of molecule the effective: is not true, as every molecule has a plateau effect after a certain concentration. Nuances of skincare are complex and can’t be detailed in this article.
Proper care can repair and protect the skin. Skin can look younger at any age by decade with an effective regimen. Your skin can look better at forty than in the thirties. Please visit us for your customized skincare.
